CPCS IT deadline: Have you confirmed your choice of system?


The national procurement of IT support for the NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS), will cease at the end of March 2022.

Community pharmacy contractors that want to continue providing CPCS, must confirm their choice of CPCS IT system by no later than February 2022. Failure to do so could impact referrals and service continuity.

The CPCS IT switching guide and NHSX CPCS IT Buyers guide list the verified system suppliers and explain the options:

1.       Switch to another CPCS IT provider – you should inform them well in advance so they can confirm the switch has been successful


2.       Stay with existing CPCS IT provider – you must notify them so they can confirm a new service agreement with you
